What’s It All About:
Jess hasn’t had a great childhood, what with running with her mother and not fully knowing what her life would turn out to be. What she did know was that her mother was dead now and that she was going to college. That didn’t seem so bad except for when the ghosts start to appear. Jess doesn’t know what to do, but thankfully her aunt and best friend don’t thin she’s crazy, and neither does one of the professors at school. Jess is learning more about her powers with the dead, and learning that everything in her life has been a secret. Will she be able to handle everything that is being thrown to her all at once? Will she be able to find Hannah? Only time will tell.
The Best Parts:
Whoa…. Not what I was expecting at all. I started this novel just thinking ok, another Ya Fantasy novel, but omg this is so much better than that! I love the story line that even as the reader we have no idea what is going on, but we find out along the way just as Jess does. There is even a romantic aspect that doesn’t overshadow the book, but adds to Jess figuring out who she really is. There are so many aspects thrown together at once, but they all connect to one another, and I love that we learn about what Jess is, not form her aunt, but form the other around her that she learned to trust. Even though the story is about family and those that you are bound to, this story also shows that family doesn’t have to be related, and you don’t have to be wiht them forever to feel that connection. That bond.
The Worst Parts:
There is only one thing I didn’t like about this book. This is totally a spoiler, but ugh it made me mad! Evan. OMG Evan. How could you! How could you break my heart in such a tiny few paragraphs! WHY?! Ugh I was so heart broken… That kiss though… like that doesn’t happen, and then he was there, and he saved her. WHY?!
Read it. I was sought out to read this book and now I want to seek you guys out. This is a quick read, worth every penny. I can’t wait to start the next one!
